Australia: What’s it all about, Aly?

September 17, 2012

Are moderate Muslims finally starting to repudiate the lunatic fringe?

…This is the behaviour of a drunkenly humiliated people: swinging wildly with the hope of landing a blow, any blow, somewhere, anywhere. There’s nothing strategic or calculated about this. It doesn’t matter that they are the film’s most effective publicists. It doesn’t matter that they protest using offensive slogans and signs, while protesting against people’s right to offend. It doesn’t matter that they object to insulting people on the basis of their religion, while declaring that Christians have no morals. This is baffling only until you realise these protesters are not truly protesting to make a point. The protest is the point.

Read the whole thing — it’s excellent.

    Waleed Aly is an intelligent man. Pity our society isn’t geared to hearing or responding to intelligent arguments.
